Phillip Lim was born in Thailand in 1973. After moving to America as a child, he studied economics and fashion merchandizing at California State University. Lim then landed a design assistant job at New York fashion house Katayone Adeli, before going on to launch his own label 3.1 Phillip Lim in 2004. Beat those winter blues with the Phillip Lim knitwear collection. Sophisticated and chic, this collection features everything from oversized turtleneck sweaters, western print pullovers, and two way zip cardigans.
